Mills Lawn School band and orchestra concert

Over 100 students took to their instruments or wound up their vocal chords in a spectacular Mills Lawn School band and orchestra concert. Many of the students had only been playing their instrument since the beginning of this school year, but under the tutelage and leadership of new music director Brian Mayer, everyone played in an ensemble. The musicians included the 5th- and 6th grade orchestras and band, as well as the combined 5th- and 6th-grade choir, led by Jo Frannye Reichert conducting a group sing-along of the holiday classic, “Winter Wonderland.” (Accompanying on the piano is Faith Skidmore, MLS music teacher emeritus, and teacher to the young Jo Frannye!). The Mills Lawn School gym was filled to capacity with audience outnumbering the performers approximately two to one.
